๐Ÿงž The Three Wishes

 


Triple the Consequences.


In Arlington, Virginia, a man was driving home after a long day at work, returning home from a long business trip overseas at Saudi Arabia. The king of the sand kingdom gave him an old Arabian lamp as a business gift.

Frustrated by another day working for his insufferable boss, he fails to notice a pothole and blows a tire. Stranded on the side of the road, he begins to drag out his spare when suddenly a genie appears next to him.


“Greetings, mortal.” The genie says. “I have taken pity on you and will thus grant you three wishes.”

 The man is stunned. “However, whatever you wish, your boss, whom you hate, will receive that same wish twofold.”


The man stops, looks at his car and says. “Well, I wish I had a nice car.” His beat-up car vanishes in a puff of smoke and is instantly replaced by a brand-new luxury sedan. The man climbs in and drives home, ecstatic to show his wife.


The next day at work, his boss gloats endlessly to everyone that two luxury cars appeared in his driveway and makes sure everyone on the floor hears about it.


That night the man consults with his wife and summons the genie, “I wish for a comfortable retirement fund for my wife and I.” A bank statement falls through their mail slot informing them that a deposit of $1 million has been placed in their retirement account.


Sure enough, the next day, the man’s boss is waving a bank statement of $2 million in everyone’s faces.


The man takes an early lunch to get away from it all. The genie is there to greet him by his car and asks if he’s decided on his third wish. “I remind you. Whatever you choose your boss will receive double.”


The man thinks long and hard, looks up at the genie and says, “I wish to donate a kidney.”
